At what age should you think about cosmetic surgery?

Posted on: August 8, 2022

But one question remains unanswered to the end – at what age should one start thinking about plastic surgery? From this article, you will learn what aesthetic problems can be solved by modern plastic surgery at any age.

At what age can plastic or cosmetic surgery be done?

Aesthetic plastic surgery, aimed at improving appearance, can be done from the age of 18, upon reaching adulthood. At this age, the process of growth and formation of the body is already complete (although it is still recommended to do plastic surgery after the age of 21). But if there are medical indications for plastic surgery, then it can be performed at any age. For example, for such a problem as flap ears, it is advisable to do plastic surgery of the auricles at the age of 6-7, so that at school the child feels comfortable in the company of peers and does not become an object of ridicule. Hair transplant surgery can also be done at any age, if there is an indication for it, and the transplanted hair will take root.

What problems does plastic surgery solve before the age of 20?

Most often, girls between the ages of 18 and 20 turn to a plastic surgeon for breast augmentation. Such an operation is called augmentation (enlarging mammoplasty). The Fat Transfer Breast Augmentation procedure is the most natural breast augmentation procedure available today.

The second most popular operation at this age is blepharoplasty of the upper eyelids (mainly with the Asian type of eye incision). As a result of surgical intervention, overhanging skin is eliminated, the fold of the upper eyelid is formed and the cut of the eyes changes, and the look becomes more “open”.

Another popular procedure for girls aged 18 to 20 is lip augmentation by lipofilling (fat tissue autotransplantation). This is a replacement for hyaluronic acid injections. Atlanta Liposuction Specialty Clinic uses its own improved and patented method of lipofilling – bioimplantation. The patient’s adipose tissue is cleaned more thoroughly before injection than during lipofilling, and as a result, it takes root almost completely. Unlike injections of hyaluronic fillers, the result of lipofilling is more predictable and lasts for a long time.

What problems does plastic surgery solve before the age of 30?

At the age of 20 to 30, in addition to breast augmentation operations, nose plastic surgery (rhinoplasty) is also popular. This operation is recommended to be done after the age of 21 when all the bone structures and cartilage of the nose have finally formed.

Also, patients are often interested in whether it is possible to remove Bish lumps at the age of 20 to achieve the effect of sunken cheeks and more pronounced cheekbones. Bish’s lumps should not be removed at any age – after 40 years, they perform the function of a kind of frame that prevents age-related sagging of the skin and soft tissues of the face.

After 25 years, endoscopic eyebrow lifting may be relevant. The operation allows you to raise the outer corners of the eyebrows and create the effect of a “fox look”, which is at the peak of popularity today. A cheek lift at such a young age (endoscopic lifting of the middle third of the face) is usually not necessary yet.

What problems does plastic surgery solve before the age of 40?

To preserve youth and beauty from the age of 30 to 40 years, many possibilities of plastic surgery are available. Most often, operations are carried out to restore the figure after childbirth: plastic surgery of the abdomen ( abdominoplasty ) and breasts (mammoplasty). They are recommended to be performed when a woman no longer plans to have children.

Abdominoplasty after childbirth allows you to get rid of a sagging stomach and an unaesthetic scar after a cesarean section. The operation can be combined with liposuction of the abdomen, sides, and other problem areas. If the breasts have greatly increased after childbirth, and their large size causes physical and aesthetic discomfort, reduction mammoplasty (breast reduction) can be performed. If necessary, this operation can be combined with a breast lift or correction of the nipples (areola). Prices for breast lifts and breast reduction are indicated on the website in the “Cost of services” section.

With pronounced sagging of the cheeks and the eyebrow line at the age of 30 to 40, it is possible to lift the middle third of the face endoscopically. This is a minimally invasive operation that is performed through small incisions in the scalp, so the traces of the intervention will not be visible, and the rehabilitation period will pass quickly and easily. Prices for face lifting depend on the category of complexity of the operation.

What problems does plastic surgery solve after 40 years?

Plastic surgery after the age of 40 is aimed at combating pronounced changes in the face and body. If the contours of the face have lost clarity, a pronounced nasolabial fold has appeared and the face looks tired, lipofilling (bioimplanting) can be performed.

The introduction of purified adipose tissue (bio-implant) into the required area (nasolabial fold, cheekbones) will restore the volume lost with age and give the face a younger and rested look. In addition, the procedure starts the process of long-term facial skin rejuvenation, as the bio-implant is enriched with growth factors that increase its density and elasticity.

Mammoplasty after the age of 40 also remains a relevant operation. Most often, at this age, there is a need for a breast lift, sometimes simultaneously with a reduction. Breast augmentation surgery at the age of 40 is somewhat less in demand than at the age of 20-30 and is also often combined with a breast lift.

Overhanging upper eyelids and bags under the eyes appear after the age of 40 due to a decrease in skin tone. This is an indication of plastic surgery of the upper or lower eyelids (blepharoplasty). Rhinoplasty after the age of 40 is performed mainly according to medical indications, to correct the consequences of injuries. For aesthetic reasons, it is better to do this operation before the age of 30, when the rate of tissue healing is maximum.

One of the most popular plastic surgeries after the age of 45 is lifting the middle and lower third of the face. For this purpose, the SMAS-lifting technique is used, which involves tightening the skin together with soft tissues, which allows you to preserve the individuality of facial features. The result of the SMAS-lift is preserved for 10-15 years. If necessary, a facelift can be combined with a neck lift (platysmoplasty).

When the eyebrows are lowered and the upper eyelids hang, a circular lift can be done for the maximum effect of rejuvenation.

Liposuction at the age of 40 is also popular plastic surgery, as it allows you to get rid of local fat deposits that cannot be eliminated with the help of diets and sports.

What plastic operations are performed at the age of 50 and older?

After 50 years, circular facelift (facelift) has been recognized as the most popular plastic surgery. The result of such surgical intervention is a very pronounced effect of facial rejuvenation (on average 15-20 years), which persists for 10-15 years. Photos before and after lifting speak for themselves.

After 50 years, abdominoplasty and liposuction remain popular operations. These surgical interventions allow you to improve the contours of the body, and make it slimmer and more fit.

Are plastic surgeries harmful during childbearing years?

Plastic operations do not harm health at any age if they were performed by a qualified plastic surgeon. After breast augmentation, implants do not interfere with breastfeeding, as they are placed under the mammary gland. But breast lift and abdominoplasty (abdominoplasty) are better done when the birth of children is no longer planned.
At what age facial rejuvenation procedures are relevant

Such a facial rejuvenation procedure as bioimplanting (lipofilling) is relevant already after 25 years. It allows you to get rid of the first age changes – pronounced nasolacrimal furrows, nasolabial folds, and a vague facial oval.

In what cases and from what age is breast plastic surgery necessary?

There are no indications for breast augmentation. This is an aesthetic plastic surgery that is performed at the patient’s request. If very large breasts at an early age (18-20 years old) cause pain in the back and neck, as well as lead to a violation of posture, then reduction (reducing) mammoplasty, can be performed.

At what age can you increase your breasts?

Breast augmentation surgery (mammoplasty) can be performed from the age of 18.

At what age is a breast lift relevant?

Surgery to lift the breast and improve its shape (mastopexy) is relevant in most cases after 25-30 years. The need for surgical intervention most often arises after childbirth and breastfeeding or sudden weight loss, which leads to sagging of the mammary glands. A breast lift can be performed even at the age of 20 if there are aesthetic indications (if the nipple is below the level of the fold under the breast).

In what cases and from what age are operations to improve body shapes necessary?

Operations to improve body shapes (mammoplasty, abdominoplasty, liposuction, lipofilling, and others) are most often performed after childbirth. They can be combined, that is, within one surgical intervention, you can increase or decrease the size of the breast and eliminate sagging of the abdomen.

The need for liposuction arises mainly after the age of 30-40 when it is necessary to remove local fat deposits on the body, which cannot be eliminated with the help of diets and sports (outer and inner surface of the thighs, knee area, stomach, arms, etc.).

Hand skin tightening

The operation to tighten the skin in the upper part of the arm is called Brachioplasty. It is indicated in cases where the skin has not shrunk and is sagging after severe weight loss or liposuction. With the help of physical exercises, this skin fold cannot be removed, only surgical intervention can help. During Brachioplasty, an incision is made along the inner surface of the shoulder and excess skin is removed. After the operation, a thin longitudinal scar will remain, which will become inconspicuous over time.

Thigh lift and plastic surgery

Thigh lifts and plastic surgery are performed in cases where it is necessary to eliminate skin sagging in the area of ​​the inner surface of the thigh. It can occur after liposuction or sudden weight loss, as well as due to natural age changes and a decrease in skin tone. During plastic surgery, a small incision is made in the inguinal fold and excess skin is removed. As a result of surgical intervention, the hips become more elastic and slender. Hip plastic surgery is recommended after the age of 40 if there are indications.

Correction of the shape of the buttocks

Plastic surgery aimed at correcting the volume and shape of the buttocks is called gluteoplasty. With the help of gluteoplasty, you can get almost any desired shape and volume of the buttocks. To increase them, both special implants and the patient’s adipose tissue (bioimplanting) can be used.

Liposuction of the buttocks is the best type of gluteoplasty, as it provides the most natural effect. In addition, when introducing own fat, there is no risk of its rejection, as with the use of implants. Gluteoplasty should preferably be performed after 25-30 years of age.
